Seattle Center Skate Plaza

Review Status

On August 1, 2019, we reviewed the design development phase (90% design phase) for the Seattle Center Skate Plaza. At this meeting we reviewed and took actions on two items, phase I and phase II design plans.  We approved the phase I plan with a condition that will be reviewed at a future subcommittee meeting.  We then approved the phase II design with no conditions or recommendations.

Project Description

Seattle Center is proposing to relocate an existing skate park to an undeveloped portion of Broad St. right-of-way (ROW) between 5th Ave N and Taylor Ave N in the Uptown Neighborhood. In 2009 a 10,000-square foot skatepark opened near the southeast corner of the Seattle Center Arena.  The proposed redevelopment of the Seattle Center Arena will require the existing skatepark to be demolished.  The new skate plaza would be located in the Broad Street right of way and will include above ground skateable elements, seating, vegetation, street trees, and green stormwater management as well as gathering spaces for groups and classes.
